Have you ever noticed the smiles on Hollywood celebrities and models—picture-perfect teeth that are as dazzling as they are symmetrical? There’s a good chance you admired someone's dental veneers.
For years dental veneers were a Hollywood secret, but today we offer celebrity-caliber veneers in Winter Park, FL.
Veneers can dramatically change the appearance of your smile.
What Are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are thin shells made of sturdy composite or porcelain. They fit across the front of your teeth to conceal the following issues:
- Slightly crooked teeth
- Small gaps between teeth
- Misshapen teeth
- Gummy smiles
- Height discrepancies among teeth
You can opt for a single veneer or several during your consultation in our Winter Park dental office.
Are Veneers a Good Option for You?
As with any cosmetic dentistry option, Dr. Bryant Anderson makes sure veneers are a good and safe choice for you. He examines your teeth, takes x-rays as needed, considers your oral health history, and then makes an informed decision. Of course, he discusses all findings with you.
If you’re a viable candidate for veneers, Dr. Anderson discusses your options. We offer both porcelain and chairside composite veneers.
The Veneer Process
Dr. Anderson prepares teeth, removing a small amount of enamel to accommodate your veneers. He then bonds the veneers to your treated teeth and makes final adjustments.
Because dental veneers require a small amount of enamel removal, they are considered permanent.
Taking Care of Your Dental Veneers
Veneers do not require specific care; you may forget you have veneers after a while; reminded only when friends and family compliment your beautiful smile.
However, restorations and veneers do not protect your teeth from dental health conditions like periodontal disease or tooth decay. To lower your risks for these, you will need to visit your dentist regularly for dental exams and professional teeth cleanings.
The American Dental Association has found that dental exams and teeth cleanings lower your risks for oral health conditions that can not only threaten your teeth but also your cosmetic dentistry.
You should also brush and floss your teeth at least twice daily.
If you suffer from bruxism, it is crucial to talk to Dr. Anderson about treatment. A custom nightguard prevents grinding and clenching, which can lead to tooth loss and loss of your dental veneers.
With proper care, your dental veneers can last for a very long time!
